Boulder City Railway Museum
This station was once the busiest in all Australia. A small train, the "rattler" was connecting Kalgoorlie, the Goldfields and Boulder. Until recently the "rattler" still ran for tourists, but it's out of service now.
You can visit see the train at the museum though, aswell as artefacts and photos from those busy days.
The museum usually is open on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-2pm.
Admission is 2 AUS$ if I remember it correctly.
Rich in Local Stones
The castle is designed in an old middle ages style with a high keep and palace which is all surrounded by walls and towers. There are some 40,000 local gemstones which are incorporated in the replica.
Location: Hammond Park
The Super Pit
This is the largest open cut gold mine in Australia and the largest working gold mine in the Southern Hemisphere - quite an impressive sight. You can find it on the Goldfields Highway between Kalgoorlie and Boulder on the famous golden mile. The mine has on average about 750 people working onsite.
Around the walls of the lookout are displays which depict the history and incredible technology which has been used to create such an amazing hole in the ground.
